    I've been looking for a few parts for my car (front fenders with vents, and front spoilers). So I was wondering if anybody in Indiana knew where a junkyard that would have 2nd gen parts. I'm about an hr north of Indy. So i dont really want to go all the way to southern Indiana.

    Please let me know if you know where one of these junkyards are at. Or if you happen to have these parts around me.

    Thanks in advance :bowtie:

    I've looked around, nothing in Northern IN, or here in central IN. I'm not sure about southern IN, but i doubt there are any.

    I guess are best bets are trading with eachother, and finding cars that have been stuck in barns.

    Thanks for the replys everybody!

    If either of you are every looking for parts, my brother has a '78 t/a and i have an 80 camaro that we are always shedding parts off of. So if either of you need t/a or camaro parts. Send me a PM.

    Too bad you're not needing a 70-77 front fender, I have a brand new AMD LH fender that I don't need and I'm letting go cheap.

    There's a yard in Greenfield Field's Auto that gets 2nd gens through occasionally. I've gotten lots of stuff from them in the past. They have a section on the east side of the yard dedicated to nothing but old iron...it's pretty cool to go out and just sniff around a little. Directions from I70 and St. Rd. 9 are: Take 9 N to Co. Rd. 600N, take 600N east to Fields. They're on the N side of 600N. I know they do have some 2nd gens out there, one complete white one as of last Oct. The others were pretty picked over.

    Also there is another yard over that way & a little north called B&K they have some older stuff too, never been there but I'm sure there are some late 2nd Gens there also.
